Low Power Radio Frequency Design for Body Area Network
Today in this world of medical computing, health monitoring equipments have form an integral part of the biomedical engineering field. The body area network forms an essential part of medical data analysis. The paper here describes the various kinds of body area networks, the frequency bands used MICS and ISM, the antennas used in the analytic nodes. In order to incorporate the two medical bands working in wide frequency bands, it also describes the kinds of antennas that can be used. Human body effects on the antenna radiation parameters as well as the effects of radiation on human body is studied and discussed.
